Hello all, i joined the board for some general information and more! I have owned my 96 splash 4x4 for about ten years with near flawless reliability. For years though the truck has been reluctant to engage first gear without shifting into second or third first from a stop. now it has gotten worse. Putting the truck in first gear is now very difficult and about half of the time it wont go anywhere. It feels like the parking brake is still engaged. other than this the truck has performed flawlessly for all of its 146,000 miles. No slipping or grinding it just doesn't want to move initially. any suggestions would be appreciated from the forum. thanks in advance!
